Recipient Org: Description The WAVE Trauma Centre is a grass roots, cross-community organisation, offering care and support to those affected by the 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland, whether through bereavement, intimidation and/or injury. Over the years the 'Troubles' has led directly to the deaths of over 3,700 people and resulted in over 30,000 serious injuries. The direct and indirect impact of the Troubles continues to be keenly felt not only in terms of individual human loss and suffering but also by young people, families and communities who continue to experience fractured relationships, social and economic disadvantage, impaired functioning and substance abuse to name a few. To date, WAVE has offered direct support to over 4,000 individuals, a mixture of children, young people and adults with over 2,000 people currently engaged in support provision. Typically, over 450 new referrals are received across the organisation each year. Referrals are received from those affected by violence more recently in addition to those traumatised or bereaved up to 35 years ago. This indicates the necessity of providing the services offered by WAVE on a long-term basis. WAVE Trauma Centre operates from five outreach centres across Northern Ireland including Armagh, Ballymoney, Belfast, Derry/Londonderry and Omagh as well as offering smaller satellite services in places like Limavady, Cookstown and Ballymena. Our support services include Counselling & Complementary Therapies; Welfare Advice; Outreach support; Advocacy & Casework service; Social Support and Trauma Training opportunities available from all centres. In addition to these, clients have the opportunity to engage in a range of oral history projects. These take the form of books around particular themes, for example 'Disappearances' or the 'Injured'. A number creative approaches to oral history are also available, using the medium of stained glass, quilting, art and ceramics. An online oral history archive is also available via the WAVE website, simply click on the 'Stories from Silence' link. Essentially the WAVE Trauma Centre is a 'one stop shop' for anyone impacted by the 'Troubles'. Whatever needs individuals have with regard to the trauma experienced, there is help available at any one of the five centres.
